DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Rinse and dry the hens.
  • In the bowl of a mini food processor, add the mustard, wine, rosemary, thyme, oil, salt and pepper.
  • Pulse until all is a smooth paste. It will be more of a liquid form than a paste.
  • Place the hens in a little roasting pan and shmear the mixture all over the birds, under the skin, around the breasts, and into the cavity.
  • Roast, breast side down for 25 minutes then flip and roast for another 25-35 minutes, or until done.
  • Remove from the oven and let rest at least 10 minutes.
  • Cut each hen in half, down the breastbone, and serve with some sauce on top.
